Diwali 2021: Celebrate The Triumph Of Light Over Darkness

03 November,2021  |  By Brainwonders

Diwali (also known as Diwali or Deepavali) is a "festival of lights'' that commemorates the triumph of good over evil, as well as the blessings of victory, freedom, and enlightenment. The term Deepavali means "row of lights" in Sanskrit. On Diwali night, people light clay lamps (known as diyas) and place them across their houses and streets to illuminate the dark night.

Diwali is largely observed by Hindus, Sikhs, and Jains. However, because the event is observed as a holiday in India, Singapore, and numerous other South Asian nations, individuals of all faiths are welcome to join in the festivities. Diwali is also celebrated by Hindu, Sikh, and Jain populations in the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia, and other parts of the world.

Significance of Diwali 2021: 

This Diwali 2021, let us look at how Diwali is an important festival.  

Diwali represents the triumph of good over evil. Lights and diyas can be found all throughout, symbolising the annihilation of dark shadows and evil. The environment of love and purity is created by everyone rejoicing and praying together. It's a day to reflect on the previous year and make better decisions for the coming year. This day represents forgiveness and forgetting; it's like giving everything around you and yourself a fresh start. It is a prosperous event in which individuals offer gifts to family, friends, and coworkers. Diwali sends out a message to rid ourselves of all darkness and illuminate our inner selves.

Diwali is one of India's most important festivals. It is a festival around which Indians, particularly Hindus, schedule their annual vacations and visits to family. Married women have planned visits to maternal houses since ancient times, and this tradition continues today with certain variations. Brothers organise visits to a married sister's marital household, and so on. It is not a one-day celebration that has been planned for a year and is finished in a flash. It lasts for five days. And, as any Indian can attest, the five days pass in a flash. Five days of Diwali 2021  include :

  • Dhanteras
  • Narak Chaturdashi
  • Lakshmi Puja
  • Govardhan Puja
  • Bhai Dooj

How Is Diwali 2021 Celebrated In 5 Different Parts Of India: 

 Diwali 2021 is celebrated in different parts of India. Let us take a look at how 5 parts of India celebrate Diwali.

  1. Varanasi: Varanasi's hallowed region celebrates Dev Deepavali, also known as the Diwali of the Gods. The gods and goddesses are said to come to Earth to bathe in the Ganga River. Devotees offer goddess Ganga their prayers and diyas. The ghats are adorned with diyas and rangolis, and the pandits execute the magnificent Ganga aarti.
  2. Bihar: Diwali is celebrated with great zeal in Bihar. Like most North Indian states, the holiday lasts five days and starts with Dhanteras, then moves on to Choti Diwali, Lakshmi Pujan, Govardhan Puja, and lastly Bhai Dooj. Diwali is marked with the lighting of diyas and the popping of crackers.
  3. Kolkata: The Bengali Kali Puja, also known as Shayma Puja, is a Hindu ritual that takes place at night. Hibiscus flowers, fish, meat, and a variety of other sacrifices are made to Goddess Kali by worshippers. Kali Puja is held at the Kalighat and Dakshineswar temples in Kolkata.
  4. Assam: In Assam, Diwali is celebrated with great zeal. People make rangolis, light diyas, and hang mango leaves and marigold garlands from their doorways. The festival lasts five days, similar to how Diwali is celebrated in other regions of India. The Assamese celebrate Bhai Duj and worship Goddess Kali and Lakshmi.
  5. Maharashtra: Vasu Baras, a festival dedicated to cows, kicks off Maharashtra's Diwali celebrations. Narak Chaturdashi is the name given to Choti Diwali. On Diwali, Maharashtrians also pray to Goddess Lakshmi.
Why is Diwali 2021 called the festival of lights?

The chiming of bells in temples and homes, the gleam of oil lamps, and the twinkling of fairy lights bring the land to life. Flower garlands and complex rangoli patterns are used to decorate homes. The main features of the celebrations are decorative lights and diyas (oil lamps). To dispel darkness and bring in light and happiness, lamps and lanterns are lit.

The Diwali 2021 stories and beliefs:

Diwali is the day Lord Rama, his wife Sita Devi, and brother Lakshmana return to their hometown after 14 years of exile, according to Hindu mythology. Rama had conquered the demon king Ravana, and the villagers lit a path for him. In certain areas, reenactments of this narrative are part of the festivities.

5 Unique Ways To Celebrate Diwali 2021:

1.  Diwali can be celebrated in a variety of ways.

Diwali is a light celebration, and it wouldn't be half as magnificent if there were not little flashes of light strung throughout the house. Try utilising old-school clay oil diyas instead of energy-guzzling electronic lights.

2.  Without alpanas and rangolis, Diwali 2021 would be incomplete.

Do not use oil paints and synthetic colours. Use the loose flowers to create rangoli. They'll bring a lot of better colours.

3.  Say no to pollution:

Toxins are still emitted into the atmosphere, even if eco-friendly crackers are available. Avoid the loud explosions wherever you are. When a loud explosion occurs, babies and animals start wailing and shivering.

4.  Recycling can be a good choice:

This is the perfect moment to start if you haven't already. Light bulbs, diyas, and agarbatti stands can all be recycled for decoration.

5.  Create a safe environment:

If everyone is having a good time, it's a true celebration. Create a safe environment for dogs and cats in your neighbourhood. Feed them so that they don't suffer burn damage while looking for food.
